Happy Monday Morning everyone! Hope you had a great weekend!

As promised, today's post is a cute little card box Beautiful Words To Live By:

Materials: CS - Paisley (Wild Asparagus), white, Sweet Leaf (CTMH); Ribbon - Forever Friends (Wild Asparagus); Punches - Daisy, corner rounder (EK Success), horizontal slot, Tag Punch (SU!), 1/4 inch hole (Staples); Stamp - Words To Live By (CTMH); Ink - Cameo Coral (SU!); white photo hangers, 16 white small brads (CTMH), "Beautiful" sentiment (Wild Asparagus, greeting glue, card box template.

This set includes a card box (a template I found a while back at SCS that I modified slightly and the original was posted by nkliewer on SCS) and 16 notelets (each 3 x 3 inches).

8 notelets are out of the Paisley CS, and 8 are out of the Sweet Leaf CS. On each set of 8 cards are the following words from the Words To Live By stamp set: Friendship, Joy, Love, Surprise, Wish, Happiness, Hope and Believe.

Here are the cards:

Each of these word stamps have a small background design (a heart, swirl, star or flower) - so the coordinating envelope has a larger stamp of that same design in the bottom right corner.
Greeting glue was used on the envelopes so that they can be licked & sealed like envelopes you buy at retail. I made my own template for the envelopes themselves.
Just saw some photos of the new items being released this weekend at CHA for the Cuttlebug! WOW! Some very neat 2-step dies. If you haven't seen the updates, you might want to check out the Provo Craft website where they have the new CHA items on their site this morning. Check it out here: Provo Craft
Remember - tomorrow is Turtle Tuesday!
Until next time, have a great day!
